Pinned topic db2cklog cross architecture

‏2014-01-16T21:44:08Z |

I have an archived log file from a db2v9.7 (AIX) installation that I'm trying to verify on a db2v10.5 (linux) installation with db2cklog. The Linux installation returns DBT7060E "...failed because the log file header contains an invalid log file number....". But succeeds when I check the log from a different AIX installation running the same version.

Has anyone tried this cross-platform log checking before between major versions on AIX/Linux before? Just wondering if this sort of error should be expected or not.

thanks

    Log files (not to mention backup images and load copy images) are only compatible between UNIXes of the same endianness, as described here.

    http://www-01.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/#!/SSEPGG_9.7.0/com.ibm.db2.luw.admin.ha.doc/doc/c0005960.html

    So, if you meant Linux on zSeries or pSeries then fine, but if you're referring to Linux on Intel compatible hardware then it would not be expected to work.

    Thanks for your reply Kelly, thats exactly what I was looking for. I'll save my gripes for another day :)
